are telling fox news, that a hundred militants took part in that assault last week. fbi agents are on the ground and looking into whether in fact the attack was an inside job. national security correspondent jennifer griffin's all over this, live in washington with more, hi, jen. >> hi, jamie, well, a fbi team assigned to investigate the murder of u.s. ambassador chris stevens is looking into whether the group of about a hundred attackers armed with rocket propelled grenades had inside help from the private security contractors who the state department had hired to guard inside the benghazi consulate. senator susan collins asked the director of the international counterterrorism center matthew olson this very question at a committee hearing this week. the state department hired blue mountain group, a private security group out of wales to vet and hire local guards for the consulates and the contract worth nearly half a million dollars. indications that the local guards may have been chasing the conflict were revealed by an online post by sean smith, and went on a gaming site. a
of there the next day. we were told by susan rice the fbi's investigating. the fbi has never gone in to banghazi. this is 15, 16 days later. that tells you banghazi is an utterly unsafe city. you know, it's al-qaedaville, if you will, if the fbi can't go into the consulate and investigate. barack obama is saying we've won the war against al-qaeda, we're winning the war, they're in retreat, all the rest of it. if al-qaeda is that strong in banghazi, the libyan government can't deal with this thing, what did we liberate there? al-qaeda is in the arabian peninsula, it's in anbar province, it's in libya, it's in pakistan. the main one, and hillary clinton just referred to it today, take a look at northern mali. it's the size of france. the affiliate of al-qaeda has taken over the place entirely. she seemed to suggest the attack might have originated there. right next door an american general has been in there. they're talking about a 3,000-man army to invade that area. what's at stake is obama's entire middle east policy and all this -- you know, queue sama is dead and year on a roll. >> sean: if th
the september 11th attacks and fbi isn't in benghazi, they're in tripoli, for security reasons they say, they say that the libyan security forces aren't providing them with security and some sort of visa problem. this is unheard of. so, senator bob corker and joe lieberman among others, they want answers from clapper about why it's happening. >> dave: to the point at that tony schaeffer made on our program yesterday, he's worked with the fbi, some of the toughest and highly technically trained individuals on the planet. comfortable going into hostile zones like benghazi, it must not be an internal reason, it must be someone else they can't go in. >> clayton: bee seeds the tactffac tactffac fact-- besides the fact that libya is a free country and not the hot son that-- as it's unfolding and discussions about james clapper on the show this morning, who is james clapper we'll taking a look at his record. he made headlines in 2010 when asked about that london terrorist attack by diane sawyer and appeared he didn't know what had happened or unfolded. take a listen. >> london, how serious is

. they have the fbi on the ground. two of the militias have been disbanded already. tremendous progress is being made. give them time to figure it out and do what is right. i think that is the respectful thing to do here. megyn: mark, the administration was very quick to come out and say mitt romney spoke too soon on this, and campaign spokesperson for obama came out and said he shoots first and aims later which was picking up on his boss's remarks when. it comes to this issue what happened in libya, is it fair, is it not a fair question to ask whether that is what this administration did in sending susan rice out there to tell all of this is about a video when they had other information? kirsten powers was on our show yesterday saying this was either gross incompetence or this was a deliberate attempt to mislead. >> she is absolutely right. look, we now know that within 24 hours they knew that it was a, that it was a terrorist attack. al qaeda was involved and five days later susan rice went on national television on five sunday shows and said it had to do with a protest on the ground

this position of denying the obvious of saying that they didn't say it, not being sincere about putting the fbi and other investigative agencies and hoping that everyone will move on and the subject will change and obama will be held accountable. >> the question is how big business debt, if at all? this is a story of folks who watch, you know, fox news that is covering it or reading online websites that are covering it. [talking over each other] >> i don't think the reconciliation of what they said was untrue -- the misstatements in a coming out, is going to be a victim. i would think the fact that they misled the american people and continue to do so, that will be a big thing. i think the october surprise some of the drama of bringing those to blame to justice will be a big thing. and that will injure the president's benefits. it will probably be a political net plus for both obama. >> i don't think obama would act immaturely i'm not for any reason whatsoever. >> you should see the libyan people themselves come out and make a very strong statement. we want justice and galicia attacking the nex
no longer comment on it because the fbi's conducting an investigation, and, therefore, if you have questions, bring them to the department of justice, the same department of justice you used to run. but they said the d. of justice isn't going the talk to you either. then we started to get leaks about who was really behind this, and it wasn't spontaneous, and this was a planned terror attack, and there was some heads up about it, and now they come out and say, okay, it was a terror act. does that shift it? no longer doj, now this is a military thing that the pentagon should be talking to us about? >> correct. correct. and, um, it was -- it's obvious that, it was always obvious that it was a terrorist attack. the fact is that the ambassador's presence in, um -- was supposed to be confidential, the fact is that they knew -- megyn: got to cut you off, general, because we're going up against a hard break. thank you so much. be right back. megyn: well, an unemployment report released this morning suggests things are not getting better on the jobs front. economists expected 375,000 new jobless clai
is the f.b.i. on this? >> tonight the f.b.i. has a tight lid on the storm they're not commenting on it. a source who works intelligence on cyber attacks told me it would be highly unusual if they were not involved because a major u.s. financial institution was a target. the claimed connection is the you tube clip and services were disrupted for a period. >> shep: thank you. >> you're welcome. >> shep: just outside the u.s. consulate in northwest pakistan, protesters throwing rocks and fire balls at police, we're told. it's the latest in a wave of demonstrations that protesters say is a response to the video which mocks mohammed. a banner being ripped offment riot police firing tear gas into the crowd. a militant group claims it was behind a suicide bombing that killed a dozen people in the afghan capitol and that the attack was also in retaliation for that video. conner powell live in kabul now. conner? >> about a dozen people were on their way to the afghan kabul airport. all employees of air charter solutions this morning when their mini bus was hit by a vehicle packed full of explos

the united states or u.s. policy. >> ooses an fbi agent, i get to look at all of that. i come to a different conclusion. they are only moderately confident that it was a spontaneous event because there are huge gaps in what we know. >> shannon: it was all about u.s. foreign policy on fox news sunday. i sat down with chris wallace for more on his interviews with dr. susan rice and the house intelligence chair, mike rogers. chris, it is all about what happened in foreign pm's this week. you had the ambassador to the u.n., dr. susan rice, to talk about the administration's position on what may have sparked what we saw play out in the middle-east. >> it is intk because jay carney, the white house spokesman said it on friday and ambassador rice backed it up, reinforced it, doubled down on sunday. they say that all of this unrest across the middle-east is all about that video that came out, this obscure video that insults the prophet muhammad, they say it has nothing to do with anti-american feelings and u.s. policies. there are an awful lot of people who question that, but that's the position of
the f.b.i. over who had to cool their heels for days before they could even get in there, and i don't know if they are in benghazi yet. but, you know, i heard yesterday about this journal that was found by -- of the ambassador, three days after the attack by a journalist walking through the compound. this is just lew ludicrous. on the face of it the way they are handling this is so incompetent, and treating it again like it's a "law & order" issue, they've sent the f.b.i. to investigate, like when they find out what is wrong are they going to try to arrest somebody in libya? bill: we'll be in touch with your office and find out what you find out. thank you for your time. i want to bring in senior brooks, a senior fellow for national security affairs. peter what is going on here. >> i have the same concerns that the chairman has, he just expressed, and he's probably better informed than i am. we see all of these loose treads on this narrative coming out of the white house. my sense at this point because of those new pieces of information that don't all fit together that they are doin
. that was torn down. we're safer. >> bob: the c.i.a. had information they shared with the f.b.i. that may have been able to do something about this. greg, you talk about, the day that 9/11 happened they were dancing in streets, i found to be outrageous. and -- >> greg: no one questions the root causes for their idiocy. not much time on campuses are spent on discussing being justices, only if the injustice is perpetrated by the united states. >> eric: there are verses in quran that con dom condone jiha. nonbelievers killing them. that is a sign to allah you are doing the right thing. that is cause of islamics extremist. >> andrea: you got upset with me earlier because i brought up something off-topic but i think it was related. we spend time not thinking about september 11. but we talk a lot about debt and deficit. the reason we were able to be successful to this point is we have money to be strong, to fund this. when we waste it on stupid things we can't be strong. we can't have a strong military. so, all of this is related. our financial security has directly related to the national security.
in the f.b.i. investigation. >> the cause and motivation behind them will be decided by the investigation. >> there are other factors involved in the violence that ensued? >> new questions as well about the fact on september 10, the white house put out a press release saying that the president met with senior officials, about the security posture around the 9/11 anniversary. the release said the president discussed steps taken to protect u.s. persons and facilities abroad. asked if the administration dropped the ball on that promise, the following day in libya, carney said numerous security steps were takep and would not directly answer whether the security in benghazi was good enough. >> you are not trying to say there was enough security in benghazi, are you? >> this is a matter under investigation. absolute tragedy that we lost four americans in benghazi, including our ambassador, including the security personnel. there is an active investigation underway. in what happened. >> for specific questions about the security measures at u.s. installations, carney referred that to the state de
susan rice cast doubt on that. officials here back off and wait until the fbi completed its investigation before, you know, saying what triggered the attack. today, as you say, the director of the national counter terrorism center in a hearing on capitol hill offered his own assessment. >> it evolved and escalated over several hours. t appears that individuals who were certainly well-armed seized on the opportunity presented as the events unfolded that evening and into the morning hours of september 12th. >> the attackers armed with rocket propelled grenades which suggest to officials here and elsewhere that they were not simply protesters. shepard? >> shepard: you know, wendell, france has been having internal problems among the folks regarding the muslims. now a french weekly has released car tunes that cartoons that depict mohammed in less than favorable light. >> the french are worried enough that they are closing diplomatic facilities in 2 o0 countries on fridays as a precaution. al qaeda group says this anti-islam film is proof that america's war on terror was really a
concerns, the f.b.i. is investigating. former u.n. ambassador told fox news megyn kelly today the content of the stevens' journal may expose, "a failing in the overall approach to the region." >> but i'm sure that if he believed that security was a problem, he would have informed the state department diplomatic security bureau. they would have made a threat assessment and should have taken the necessary steps. the fact that he and three other americans were killed by definition shows there was a massive failure of security. >> at first, cnn only cited an individual familiar with stevens' thinking. a few days later, anderson cooper disclosed the existence of the journal. enter felepe reynes, aide to hillary clinton. he told cnn they lack humanity to fail to allow assurances to the stevens family to return the journal promptly and not report on personal details. cnn executives dispute that. now enter hastings for buzzfeed.com facing his best known for an article he wrote for "rolling stone" magazine a couple of years back that resulted in the firing of generally stanley mcchrystal. hastings
or 37 times. >> bob: that is right. snoop on me one night. >> dana: f.b.i. agent. >> bob: there is nothing wrong with snooping if you get away with it. >> andrea: have you snooped on a woman? >> bob: hell, yes. >> andrea: find anything good? >> bob: the diaries. >> andrea: what did they write? >> bob: about former boyfriends. >> greg: you snoop on craigslist. >> bob: days gone by. >> andrea: dana? >> dana: i have a boring situation, because i never even -- i don't know -- no. no. i feel boring. >> greg: you snoop on your dog. when your dog leaves. jasper. >> andrea: eric? you're a father of a teenage son. so do you snoop on your son? >> eric: here is the thing. you can't call it snooping, because that wouldn't work. the best thing to do is let him or her know you will look and watch the facebook page and look through the phone. i remember one time -- well, i had his phone here by accident. took his phone. look through the pictures. you don't find anything but the kids need to know you are looking. >> greg: by the way, we were just watching n my basement -- watching in my
the investigation. >> the team from the f.b.i. reached libya this week. i will advice congress also i am launching a accountability review board. that will be chaired by ambassador thomas pickerring. >> later in the day, members of congress briefed by clinton and the director of national intelligence on the assault by terrorists. >> they are attempting to establish whether he was kegged to people who made the attack. she a person of interest if you will. >> the story now has been changed. there was a planned premeditated attack. when we put our people around the world, at risk and don't provided a quite security. shame on us. >> the ambassador says the two seals killed in benghazi were there to protect them bass dore. >> two of the four americans were killed were there providing security. >> the two seals were in libya working for separate agency. they responded when they heard the gun fire and they killed themselves. >> bret: the decision to release gupta from gitmo was the bush administration. but the bigger story may be the presence of al-qaeda in libya and how strong they may be. >> what we ha
, osama bin laden. who knows what? eric shaun is with us. eric, i know you have a lot of sources at the f.b.i. and other agencies like that. what can you tell us? >> i apologize for being out of breath 'cause i was walking down fifth avenue, which is close to our studios and i heard a jet, perhaps a 737 or a small air bus, flying low, unusually low over fifth avenue making a right. i'm not going to -- i don't have any reports on what type of plane hit the world trade center. but people looked up and it made a right toward the building. >> tragedy, it is abhorrent, it is disgusting, but i'm wondering, are these pilots, terrorists themselves? are there terrorists in the cockpit who are holding guns to a pilot's head? >> i can't imagine -- >> you can speculate completely about how this happens because obviously it takes a lot of training and expertise to fly a complicated, sophisticated aircraft l it's a boeing 737 or a smaller air bus. these are not little cessnas and little pipers. so you have to wonder and raise what possibility there is with the type of scenario that was going on in the coc
yesterday. the f.b.i. is in libya assisting local authorities investigating what happened at that consulate and they're searching for those responsible. in indonesia and pakistan, protesters clashing with police, and elsewhere after friday prayers. muslim leaders called for calm, but the flag burning and anti-american chants continue. protesters set fire to two movie theaters and a toll booth. police responding with tear gas and batons and the security has been beefed up at embassies across the region with more -- the possibility of more protests ahead. guys. >> gretchen: rick leventhal live in jerusalem, thank you. >> eric: let me point something out. a lot of the reason why it was the movie and it has been the movie is because a couple of weeks ago at the dnc, at the convention down there, joe biden said it, i'm not sure if president obama said it or not, but it was you ared quite a few times, osama bin laden is dead and gm is alive. a lot of this protest is at least what we're reading, is in response to the victory lap that the administration is taking for killing bin laden. so if you at
this thing back under control. megyn: there was an fbi briefing this morning where the homeland security department warned that the united states could be attacked in the wake of all this dread what can you tell us about that? remapped i think it is far too early to tell. i don't think we have anything concrete. there is going to be violence in the united states, we don't have any proof. it's the logical caution, knowing how certain groups are trying to fan these flames and cause trouble for us and our allies overseas. megyn: mr. chairman, thank you so much for your time. we appreciate it. i want to let all of our viewers know that the chairman will be on fox news sunday. this sunday with chris wallace. he will give chairman wallace roger is rogers the time he deserves for an interview. ben bernanke's plan to fix the economy and skeptics. we will have that just ahead. plus, the shadow of the iranian hostage crisis looming over the turmoil in the islamic world. former president jimmy carter saying that handling should be an example for president obama to follow. we will talk to him about
and keep going at it. no one believes it because it's not true. >> how can he he know that? fbi teams are just arriving in libya. the investigation is underway. we know that they were armed -- the attackers at least in lib afterthe embassy were armed with rocket propelled grenades, you pick those up as you are heading toward the protest? >> you are exactly right. the white house has a handle on the intent of the attackers? they have no clue. common sense tells you it's bigger than a video. >> the problem is it goes to the rationale of the obama candidacy four years ago which was total condemnation of the bush policy. total condemnation of our position, especially in the muslim world. so the president, president obama preached empathy, preached an association based on his past and his education and based upon where he grew up and said, listen, i understand you. now the muslim world has rejected it and, in some ways, rejecting not only america but the obama presidential handout. >> that is certainly charles krauthammer's theory. he was on "special report" last night. >> this has nothing
